Whether riding or auditing, almost nothing can propel your riding education faster or get you into gear more effectively than a clinic with a top rider. They’ve been where you are and know the path to the top.

Most importantly, a clinician can be an incredibly refreshing change of pace from your regular coach. It’s so easy to get into a rut with your own trainer picking at the same issues and working towards a date on the summer calendar. But a clinician isn’t thinking about Regionals. A clinician is thinking about how to get you braver, straighter, more forward to the fence. They’re thinking through what they can break and then fix in two 45-minute sessions.

If you’re game to be born again through the eyes of an accomplished equestrian, here’s a few May clinics to get the ambition juices flowing.
